  • Lyrics: I’ve been around long enough to know/ When something good comes along my way/ There’s something in you that’s got a hold on me/ There’s a depth behind those eyes of yours and that’s something I don’t ever see/ I’ve been down from these winter nights/ They come so quick and last so long it would be nice to have you by my side/ It’s dawning on me that nothing is going to change/ Until I open up these doors of mine so we could sit and listen through the rain/ I’m a traveling soul, and I don’t want to be untrue/ And there’s a whole lot of heartache that I don’t want to put you through/ But something tells me, we’re destined to meet again/ We’ll just have to wait until the river bends/ I’ve been told “to listen to your soul”/ And everything else is going to fall into place/ I’m not ready for you, I can tell your ready for me/ Maybe it’s my fear that’s keeping me from getting what I truly need/ I’m a traveling soul, and I don’t want to be untrue/ And there’s a whole lot of heartache that I don’t want to put you through/ But something tells me, we’re destined to meet again/ We’ll just have to wait until the river bends/ It seems like you and me are off to a beautiful start/ I don’t know what else there is to see, but I like what I’ve seen so far/ I’d have to be the biggest fool to ponder what lies ahead/ So I’ll just have to wait until the river bends/ I’m a traveling soul, and I don’t want to be untrue/ And there’s a whole lot of heartache that I don’t want to put you through/ But something tells me, we’re destined to meet again/ We’ll just have to wait until the river bends/ We’ll just have to wait until the river bends/
